Ukiyo-e New Year's Exhibition

Until Wed Jan 28, 2015 Ukiyo-e Ota Memorial Museum of Art

Opening up again after roughly a month of renovation, Harajuku's Ota Museum celebrates the coming of 2015 with a 'greatest hits' exhibition featuring pieces by latter-day Edo masters like Keisai Eisen, Utagawa Kunisada and Hiroshige, while also highlighting the earlier work of celebrated monster painter Toriyama Sekien. 

Keeping it simple with the themes, the show consists mainly of prints depicting Edo meisho ('famous places') and beautiful women, so both history buffs and aestheticians ought to find this one exciting.
